This isn't your father's Battleship... Every mission begins with the normal placement of your 5 ships, but then it gets much more refreshing. You have 'Attack' and 'Scan' resources (Red and White pegs) that you gain a few of after every turn. Each of your ships have special abilities that utilize these resources with some slight variation amongst the "factions" of ships. For example, the military cruiser can use 5 white pegs to detect an entire row/column. It will cover 4 squares at a time and mark any ships in its path with a green peg. This is the game's greatest feature. It allows for enjoyable variety in a classic board game.

Game Modes:
Campaign - This is where you will probably spend most of your time. There are 30 missions to complete against the AI. If you thought that playing a game such as Battleship against AI would be a bad idea, then you'd be right. Missions 1-19 and 26-30 are a breeze, with the AI making dumb choices or just not finding you quick enough. Missions 20-25, however, are much tougher. The 24th mission is pure pain. The AI suddenly becomes a god-tier Battleship player, sometimes hitting multiple ships on its first turn. It also recieves 4 of each resource every turn whereas you only recieve 2 of each. This leaves you understocked and against an extremely precise bastard (that makes really stupid mistakes just to give you a chance). The campaign is a small bit entertaining, but not very great.

VS - Allows you to match against an AI or another local player. Playing against the AI is basically the same as the campaign, but where both players recieve 3 of each resource every turn. For local players, it is the same, but each player is expected to look away as the other play places their ships. There is also a classic mode. In this mode, each player gets 1 attack per turn and nothing else like normal Battleship. There is, of course, an Online Vs mode too!

Battleship has a pretty easy, short completion except for completing all of the Tutorials and Campaign missions. Mission 24 is still a pain. Everything else is quick and easy with 2 controllers.

    Roblox is a multi-server/ multi-gamemode multiplayer game. It currently doesn't have that many gamemodes for a game of its style (just garbage; with nothing to look at because of horrible, horrible graphics), however gamemodes will most likely be added in waves. Also, this game's art style looks like if someone took Legos and rubbed them in nasty wax. Roblox is heavily micro-transaction...

  • What in the World? is one of those games where you are given a picture (normally with things like words removed) and you must guess what the picture is of. This game, however, has been laced with bugs and ads. After almost any puzzle is solved either an ad, a Facebook thing, a game breaking crash, or a rate and review thing will appear. This will drain a lot of enjoyment out of the...

  • Twins is a charming little endless runner game. You play as a ball trying to get as far as you possibly can before your inevitable demise. Gameplay: There is a line that you move along in the middle of the screen that is your center of gravity. It is full of holes and spikes. The holes allow you to switch your gravity to the other side of the line and the spikes (who would've...

  • Are you teetering on the edge of whether or not you think that video games are dying? Do you think that beat 'em up games are pretty good? Well then, don't play Zheros! This game will suck the life out of you, make you disown your Xbox One, and ruin all beat 'em up games for you; even the good ones such as Streets of Rage and Castle Crashers However, Zheros is a 3D (no...

  • Welcome to my review for Ben-Hur! Ben-Hur is quite possibly the greatest game ever made. Don't even get me started on the 100s of hours of replayability, beautiful graphics years ahead of its time, and immersive gameplay. Story: The story of Ben-Hur is the story of legends. I don't want to spoil the one amazing cut scene that is almost movie trailer-like in style and grandeur. This...
